The passing of Carolyn Elizabeth Johnston of Fredericton, NB, wife of Ronald Johnston, occurred on Friday, February 2, 2024.  Born on May 21, 1953 in Fredericton, NB, she was the daughter of the late Wallace and Rose (Knox) Davidson. Carolyn worked in customer service for NB Power for over 31 years.  She was a life member of Devon Park Baptist Church; prior to this she attended Union Street Baptist Church. She was quiet by nature but could communicate with anyone.

In her younger years she always enjoyed going for drives with her grandfather, at the end of the drive she was always treated with Cracker Jacks. She would never turn away dark chocolate either! Her many interests included traveling, preferred the desert in Arizona over the humidity in Florida, but made many trips to both, she also enjoyed reading, watching TV (SOAPS and the News at 6) or anything to do with the Queen, spending time on her computer learning anything about labs and retrievers. She occasionally would shop at LL Bean and Naturalizer for shoes. It was a sad day for her when Zellers and Sears closed as these were always her go to.
